These fruit crumb bars may just be one of my very favorite desserts. You see, I’ve now made them with blueberries (delicious), freshly picked raspberries (amazing) and now with ripe, juicy peaches. Every variation has been a delight. I already have several fall-inspired variations in mind. This particular variation reminded me of a perfect, portable version of peach pie.
They are easy as can be, and are obviously easily adapted to many different types of fruit. I had these peaches in my kitchen and I really think they had about 5 minutes left before they would have been too ripe to use for anything except water balloons, so I decided to whip these up. All the other ingredients are pantry staples so if you have the fruit on hand, you are ready to go. I love that the same mixture used for the base also serves as the crumb topping. I think it’s true of all the versions, but with peach in particular, these are really best served the same day they are made. The fruit is very juicy and the crust portion will get soggy if left to sit much longer than a day. I’m sure your friends and family will think it quite the travesty that you need help finishing them off.
